Condition - there is some age browning ( uniform) to the page block ends, ( see photos above) some slight foxing, internally clean and fine, unmarked, not ex library. The dustjacket is near fine, there is a sticker over the barcode panel on the back, similar to the one on the front cover. Originally these were probably peelable, they now look to be fixed in place.
At the turn of the twentieth century, Nathan Walker comes to New York City to take the most dangerous job in the country: digging the tunnel far beneath the Hudson that will carry trains from Brooklyn to Manhattan. In the bowels of the riverbed, the workers - black, white, Irish and Italian - dig together, the darkness erasing all differences. But above ground, the men keep their distance until a dramatic accident on a bitter winter's day welds a bond between Walker and his fellow workers that will both bless and curse three generations. Almost ninety years later, Treefrog stumbles on the same tunnels and sets about creating a home amongst the drug addicts, alcoholics, prostitutes and petty criminals that comprise the forgotten homeless community.
